An evaluation of MD-Dot Webhosting

We, at, have picked 'MD-Dot Webhosting' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. Therefore we deem that this brief assessment of 'MD-Dot Webhosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'MD-Dot Webhosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'MD-Dot Webhosting' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have detected is the budget prices of the shared hosting accounts delivered by 'MD-Dot Webhosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting packages supplied by 'MD-Dot Webhosting' are powered by an in-house invented, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by a separate group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have immense problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting distributors are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting packages, which are driven by an actual cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus preserving the web hosting price really low (since a lot of users are hosted on the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for a high-end web page hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a low-end website hosting account that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. That way, you save money that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Every hosting account offered by 'MD-Dot Webhosting' arrives with an online site builder and over forty widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'MD-Dot Webhosting' delivers shared web hosting accounts in a number of different regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, approximately the whole planet is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting solution at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'MD-Dot Webhosting' are really well equipped and are available at an excellent price (starting from $3.25 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may appear complicated to handle. That's probably why 'MD-Dot Webhosting' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American server farm in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to managing a typical shared site hosting account through a webspace hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting account such as a fee-free site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web site hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web page hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not include root privileges (we, at, think that this is a small downside), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting packages. This means that a user-friendly graphical interface is accessible by all customers who are not confident enough to manage a virtual private hosting server, yet require more power and reserves than a VPS can furnish them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful hyper-advanced hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'MD-Dot Webhosting' can be defined as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful site hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'MD-Dot Webhosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' needs, 'MD-Dot Webhosting' delivers an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the quick and steady performance of any type of website. According to 'MD-Dot Webhosting', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'MD-Dot Webhosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server provides free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers furnished by 'MD-Dot Webhosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a little problem, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of web hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the outstanding point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will possibly make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'MD-Dot Webhosting' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
